I may like electronic gadgets but mobile phone is different, certainly iPhone is very different. iPhone is not just a phone it's a computer. I just don't like talking to people over the phone and my mobile is always in silence mode.
Another concern is of course the carrier, the latest is that you could now order one online from local Apple Store. It says now
iPhone 3G purchased at the Apple Online Store can be activated with any wireless carrier. Simply insert the SIM from your current phone into iPhone 3G and connect to iTunes 8 to complete activation.
I still won't buy one because I have enough time with computers.
